Art in the Sky: Lake Tahoe Aerial Photography
Lake Tahoe Aerial Photography-Art in the Sky
This last weekend I was finishing up the Aerial Photography projects for El Dorado Hills and Sacramento, as well as the Golden One Center’s video. It was a typical editing weekend at Coruscating Images, after days behind a computer I knew I had to take some time for myself. What better place to relax than forty five minutes up Highway 50 to Lake Tahoe! This is my Lake Tahoe Aerial Photography Blog, at one of my favorite places in California.
South Lake Tahoe Weekend
The city of South Lake Tahoe is famously known for their towering Sierra Mountains, Luxury Real Estate, and Casinos on the California/Nevada State line. When you want to bring your family to a place that will produce lasting memories, you come to Lake Tahoe.
I grew up snowboarding and wake boarding from the time I was ten years old. The Sierra Nevada landscape, and vibrant blue water was carved with my boards edges and a love for the outdoors became embedded in me. Bringing Aerial Photography to California’s largest Alpine Lake in America was something I had to do.
Things to do in Lake Tahoe
- Take your boat on the lake
- Snowboard and Ski on the Sierra’s
- Water sports like Paddle Boarding, Kayaking
- A night on the Town at The Hard Rock, Harrahs, and Harvey’s famous Casinos
- Night Clubs like Opal at Montbleu, PEEK at Harrah’s, and Xhale Bar & Lounge
Aerial Video at Emerald Bay & Sand Harbor
Coruscating Images is the leading force in Aerial Photography and Video in the Sacramento and surrounding areas. Capturing the true essence of Lake Tahoe’s beauty was more difficult than I anticipated. Some of the remote terrain and cell phone towers do not get along. Making wifi connection to my Dji Phantom 4 weary at times.
Luckily with the use of a personal hotspot device, I was able to lock in GPS coordinates at the Famous Emerald Bay, a place I frequently visit. The glamorous Aerial Views here far surpass my previous on the ground DSLR images.
Sand Harbor towards Incline Village was another gem offered for visitors here in Lake Tahoe. Sitting on the Nevada side, this get away beach brings most people back to their connection with nature. You suddenly realize that the World is much bigger, and nature overpowers modern life in a city. The Aerial video and Photography I got here at Sand Harbor is by far some of my favorite to date.
Aerial Photography and Canvas Prints
Many famous photographers have came here and conquered. Created simply brilliant landscape images covering almost every inch of Lake Tahoe. I admire much of their work. Canvas prints of South Lake Tahoe and the surrounding areas has become a must in many homes and business’. You can see many artists work here all over the world. Most notably was Ansel Adams, known for his dramatic landscapes in the Sierra Mountains and Yosemite Valley.
Now today Aerial Photography can capture things only a helicopter ride might provide. The ability to get where my camera can’t go has opened a world of creativity for me as an artist. I am grateful to be in the position to share my love for Nature and Lake Tahoe through photography and video.
